Sage Fruit to sell SugarBee apples

Starting with the 2022 apple crop Sage Fruit Co. will have SugarBee apples available for its retail and wholesale partners as a result of its newly formed partnership with Chelan Fruit.

“We feel this is an excellent opportunity for our organization and we are thrilled to be able to supply our retail and wholesale partners, as well as our food service customers with the SugarBee,” said Chuck Sinks, Sage Fruit’s president of sales and marketing. 

SugarBee harvest will begin in early October, with several packaging options available. In addition, the Sage Fruit sales and marketing teams will be working closely with our part-ners to build unique programs utilizing marketing and merchandising techniques that will increase sales at retail.  With having both Conventional and Organic SugarBee apples this crop season, we will be able to keep our retail customers and consumers happy with our ability to supply both product lines.

“We are excited by the opportunity to supply SugarBee apples this season. The SugarBee is an outstanding apple that consumers have come to know and love,” said Steve Clement, CEO of Sage Fruit Co. “Partnering with Chelan Fruit has increased our company’s ability to supply our customers with the best tasting, highest quality tree fruit Washington State has to offer, and we’re thrilled they’ve entrusted us with this specialty variety this season.” 

Chelan Fruit joined the Sage Fruit family of grower, packer, shippers to enhance the marketing, sales and distribution of its Washington-grown tree fruit at the beginning of the 2022 cherry season. Through this partnership, Chelan Fruit will contribute considerable volume of conventional and organic apples, pears during this upcoming season.

Chelan Fruit is a nearly 3,000-acre farming operation complete with its own packing and cold storage facilities and is one of Washington’s leading fruit producers.
